I’m delighted that I’m all set up for this group exhibition at The Gage Gallery in Sheffield.
My exhibited work has not been displayed publicly to date, the work has been created in the past twelve weeks and includes Acrylic Paintings, Lino prints, Sewn Artworks, Fabrics, Ceramics and my new Oil Painting. The work has been created since my first solo exhibition was hung at Airy Fairy in Sheffield. Watch the Virtual Exhibition Video here.
Entitled Inspire the work is influenced by artists including Piet Mondrian, Mark Rothko, Kenny Scharf, Jeff Koons, Frida Kahlo, Friedensreich Hundertwasser, Antoni Gaudi and the art of Ancient Egypt. These artists, cross referenced with research into how different colours benefit the body in different ways, and study of Alain de Botton’s Art as Therapy perceived functions of art (Phaidon, London, 2015), culminate in this body of work.
Inspiration is about going on, moving forwards, continuing, venturing, resilience despite setbacks and challenges in life.
I have explored how light, colour and energy can be represented using different mediums in the hope of creating art to uplift and inspire.
By shedding light and colour energy into people’s lives hopefully a ripple of positivity can counter some of the darkness of modern society and the media.
Full details are in the images.
Come along for a colour hug.
